Maybe somedays he is in a better mood and so goes along with it but some days he is just too bored to keep going? If he is always good when jumping that seems like it would rule out him doing it because of a painful back. I would think jumping puts more strain on their back doesn't it? Unless it is when you do alot of work on bending that he acts up bending would use different muscles then other flat work or jumping would. One horse I know hates having to do flexion work but will jump and do other flat work fine...
